Marshmello goes pop punk on ‘You & Me’
If there is one connecting thread to Marshmello‘s catalog, it’s an infectious, undeniably ebullient energy. That energy is readily apparent on the producer’s latest, “You & Me,” though the masked producer veers into a new sound, while also contributing his own vocals for the first time.
Marshmello wastes little time in making his new intentions known, as the distorted guitar arpeggios and vocals are immediate and obvious throwbacks to the pop punk bands that dominated the zeitgeist in the late 90s and early aughts. Eminently catchy, the producer swaps the guitar out for his candy coated basses and neon synth patches shortly after, melding his signature style with old influences into a fully original, new sound sure to delight fans.
